Quaker Steak and Lube just announced that three corporate-owned restaurants are set to open in Carrollton, Plano and North Dallas within the next year.

Replete with gas station memorabilia and racecars suspended from ceilings, this 38-year old wing and burger restaurant that originated in Sharon, PA, started as a cook-your-own-steak restaurant. Now they do all the cooking for their wings, burgers, ribs, steaks, salads, cheesecakes and so on.

Affectionately known to regulars as "The Lube," the menu glorifies variety. In addition to their prized wings, the menu swings from "Sizzlin' Shrimp Roasted Corn Quesadilla" all the way over to a "Pan Asian Salmon Bowl." Plus there are ribs and, since they're from PA and all, cheesesteak. Even a "BBQ O-Ring Cheesesteak."

Didn't bother counting every item, but there has to be well over 100 menu options. They also have fat free Ranch. The Carrollton spot is set to open in September and the other two by the end of year or early 2013. Get ready to get lubed, people.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
